Dyslexia workshop will introduce, inform attendees

Difficulty reading can have a profound impact on a person’s life.

While we tend to focus on childhood reading and its influence on school achievement, reading challenges affect all ages and for some reason seem to resist consensus on issues like diagnosis and best methods of learning to read, and that is especially true for dyslexia.

People with dyslexia, and there are many and many whose dyslexia has become undetectable to those around them, may have trouble with their emotions, their personal feelings and more, which is understandable, sad and reversible. People with dyslexia can learn to read. It is a proven fact.

This coming Saturday, the Wisconsin Institute for Learning Disabilities/Dyslexia, Inc. is holding a mini-workshop for teens, adults, school counsellors, school board members — for people with reading challenges and people who work with people with reading challenges.

There will be information shared, symptoms and diagnosis described and best practices demonstrated. We urge anyone interested in an introduction to dyslexia to attend. It may just change your life.
